This hotel was spectacular!!! They have wedding down to an art form. From the first day you step in to inquire about your wedding to the week after your wedding you deal with one main person, the Social Catering Manager, Ami Wheeler. She is fantastic and is director for the wedding ceremony, which is included in the price for the ceremony. The setting can't be beat. Cocktail hour was situated outdoor on a terrace and you could also walk inside too. For the reception the food is awesome to say the least...we are still getting compliments on the food. We could get up to 3 different entree selections for everyone, or you have a choice of buffett style. The hotel room you get with the package is a bridal suite, and it is huge and on the ground level so you can look out the window while getting ready and you can see them setting up the ceremony and when your guest start arriving. All I can say is I would not have wanted to have it anywhere else. You also get free run for photos that day in the hotel, the hotel has such a nice setting and so much artwork, you can have photos taken in front of them. It makes for very unique wedding photos. All in all a wonderful place, the entire staff there was great. Sorry it's so long!
We spent our wedding night at the Umstead and couldn’t have wished for a more glamorous yet relaxing way to end our special day. It is very pricey but they do cater to you. The room was luxurious. There was a Jacuzzi tub for two, plush robes and slippers to greet us. Later, they delivered champagne and chocolate covered strawberries and other goodies to our room. We had a patio that overlooked the lake where we breakfasted. Just amazing ambiance.
